I'm a 20 year old male and have been recently diagnosed with mild asthma probably attributed to second-hand smoke and pollution. I have not undergone any major surgeries, and the only medication I use is Ventolin (an inhaler), and I do so occasionally only when the need arises.
I have a simple question. Is running out of breath while making out with your girlfriend related to asthma? It's happened a few times, but then I started using Ventolin morning and nights.. and I don't run out of breath anymore. I know I could just be prescribing myself a placebo.. and the cause could be just psychological. I don't want to rely on an unnecessary medication, after all that's how addiction starts right? So I just want to know if asthma is the reason for running out of breath. Thanks in advance.
